Mental Health and Youth Suicide is a difficult subject confronting all communities and it is time we took action and did something about it.
Suicide is the leading cause of death among Victorians between 15 and 24 years of age. The social disruption and trauma to family, friends and the community is of increasing concern for us all. The loss of people to the scourge of suicide is an existential trauma wound for the entire community.
Mental Health and suicide is a complex problem, and rates of suicide are affected by many social, cultural, as well as individual factors, in the face of which young people feel quite helpless. Responsibility for preventing suicide cannot rest on individuals, families and friends alone. It will require a combined and intense community effort to address its terrible toll and the damage it causes within our community.
We are happy to advise that our Avalon Dance Stars on the Floor committee and the Mental Health Foundation Australia have joined together to organise this wonderful Avalon Dance Stars on the Floor.
